POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - A driver was killed after, authorities said, a crash along Interstate 95 in Pompano Beach caused him to be ejected from his pickup truck.
Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene in the northbound lanes, south of Atlantic Boulevard, at around 5 a.m., Sunday.
According to investigators, the driver of a 2000 Ford pickup truck swerved to the right shoulder, then overcorrected and traveled across all lanes until the front and left side of the truck crashed into the median wall.
The impact caused the victim to be ejected from the vehicle and land on the left shoulder.
The driver, later identified as 37-year-old Willie James Kemp, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers shut down all northbound lanes and diverted traffic to the Cypress Creek exit while they investigated. All lanes have since reopened to traffic.
